Today was Friend's Day at our church and we had a music trio from our church singing country and blues songs that were fabulous. I will have to try to find some of them as videos. Pastor did a very quick message based on Ecclesiastes 4:9-12.
9 Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work:
This represents friendship being PRODUCTIVE
10 If one falls down,
his friend can help him up.
But pity the man who falls
and has no one to help him up!
This represents friendship being RESTORITIVE
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
This represents friendship being NURTURING
12 Though one may be overpowered,
two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
This represents friendship being SECURE
Pastor also reminded us that God is not specialized or limited to one person or group but He is available to all.
This is our daughter's one year wedding anniversary.
I picked this song for her and her wonderful husband and the movie shots are a lot of fun.
A Verse for Today:
John 15:12-15 NIV
12My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. 13Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. 14You are my friends if you do what I command.
I said prayers today for many friends, local and online, wishing you God's blessings.
